Frozen Keisters and Camera Problems

Click for Erie, Illinois Forecast

Jumping a little ahead of a couple of stories, Last night we were just east of the  Quad Cities of Rock Island, Moline, Davenport and Bettendorf  which are in the states of IL and IA.  (This is the place where the Rock River merges with the Mississippi.) We froze our butts off and had to turn on the furnace. It was a new record low.  It must be time to head back south, but that day still lies about a month away.

About two weeks ago, I dropped the camera and now the screen looks like this.


The last few reports were published (and the next two) with pictures from this camera.  It’s tough to just point and not know what you are shooting at.  Sometimes you get lucky, other times not.

I can’t believe it, but when we purchased the camera back in March of 2007, we had the foresight to purchase a 4-year repair or replace policy on the camera.  We have to be in the general vicinity of the store for a couple of weeks while they process the replacement.  Therefore, we’ll have to wait until we get back to Texas to deal with it.

That poor camera has been through the works and has held up well through the over 12,000 pictures that we have taken with it.

In the meantime, I purchased a Kodak EZ Share camera to tide us over until we have our other one fixed.
